    How to claim student halls injury compensation


    How to claim student halls injury compensation

    Living in student halls at university is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that most students don’t want to miss out on. For many students, it’s their first time away from home and their first taste of independence; unfortunately it’s not always a positive experience. With so many students under one roof, you could be injured if you’re involved in an accident whilst living in halls, and Accident Advice Helpline has helped hundreds of students claim student halls injury compensation since 2000.

    At least you know there will be no expensive legal fees to pay when you make a claim with us, as our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee** basis, leaving you more of your student loan for socialising.

    Accidents in halls – how does that happen?

    Living in halls, you come across some of the same risks that you would living in rented accommodation. Except this time it’s up to the university, not your landlord, to ensure that your accommodation is safe. You could be injured by broken or damaged furniture in your room – such as a bed or chair with sharp edges. You could be electrocuted, scalded or burned by faulty electrical appliances in your shared kitchen, such as a faulty kettle or toaster. You could even suffer injuries after slipping on a wet floor in the communal hallway or bathroom after somebody else has failed to clean up after themselves.

    In all these cases, somebody else is responsible for your accident, whether that’s one of your fellow students or the university itself. So you could claim student halls injury compensation, whether you have suffered cuts and bruises, electric shock or even broken bones after an accident whilst living in student halls.

    Time off your studies

    If you’re seriously injured after an accident in halls – for example if you suffer a head injury after falling down a flight of stairs – you might find you’re unable to return to your studies, impacting your future. Accident Advice Helpline will take this into account when working out your personal injury settlement. Our lawyers and advisors have years of experience, so don’t be afraid to call us on 0800 689 0500, to talk about your accident and get confidential, no-obligation advice.

    It’s free to call and it’s totally up to you whether you want to proceed with a claim – the good news is that it’s unlikely you’ll have to go to court, as we can process most claims over the phone.
